Cinephiles Film Club will be screening ‘Before the Rain’ movie at Lamakaan, Road No 1, Banjara Hills on April 24. ‘Before the Rain’ is a 1994 British-French-Macedonian film starring Katrin Cartlidge, Rade Šerbedžija, Grégoire Colin and Labina Mitevska. It was directed and written by Milcho Manchevski. The music was created by the band Anastasia. Director of photography was Manuel Teran, Editor Nicolas Gaster, production designers David Munns and Sharon Lomofsky. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and won the Golden Lion award at 51st Venice International Film Festival, alongside Vive L'Amour by Tsai Ming-liang. Set against the background of political turbulence in Macedonia and contemporary London, three love stories intertwine to create a powerful portrait of modern Europe in Milcho Manchevski’s ‘Before the Rain’. When a mysterious incident in the fabled Macedonian mountains blows out of proportion, it threatens to start a civil war, and brings together a young monk who has taken a vow of silence, a London picture editor, and a disillusioned war photographer in this tragic tale of fated lovers. Told in three parts that connect in an illusionistic circular narrative, and linked by characters and events, ‘Before the Rain’ explores the uncompromising nature of war as it ravages the lives of the unsuspecting, and forces the innocent to take sides.
